Re: Solar oven?

Unless you are north of the border. Then I'll say that even on a day where it's 4 or 5 out......

Re: Solar oven?

This is a high-quality oven. Now it has huge reflectors and as I found out to get the higher temperatures you really need them. So this will only be used when it's not windy or if you can put it in a sheltered from the wind not Sun area on your boat. Click image for larger version

Re: Solar oven?

5" Vacuum tubes are currently on sale by this company for $55 plus $15 shipping. This prefab reflector looks interesting. Click image for larger version

And the price of these vacuum tubes has gone up so $70 is not bad. And the reflector looks easy enough to copy.

Re: Solar oven?

I definitely think the five inch vacuum tubes are better. But this is a good price for those of you interested in the smaller diameter vacuum tube solar ovens.Click image for larger version

Re: Solar oven?

Sorry for not being able to post a link. Here's a video of the bigger gosun in action. Pretty slick design. But damn they're expensive. Lots of good advice on how temperature shock can shatter them. Click image for larger version

Re: Solar oven?

And here's one that looks like the smaller go Sun but the "ratings" say the aluminum reflector is very flimsy possibly not the right curvature and the photos show a surface that does not look very reflective. But with a little modification this is a deal for those that want something that takes up little room. Click image for larger version
